Trivia

According to an interview on the Adam Carolla Show (November 5, 2008,) Dana Gould and Harland Williams were "the original stars of 'Bio-Dome'_." As Williams described it, "...They did an open-ended cattle call for Bio-Dome. And I guess Dana and myself were kind of like the emerging funny guys around town ... they whittled it down, wildfingers, and it got down to me and the wildcat over here." Stephen Baldwin and Pauly Shore were not part of the process at that time, and Gould and Williams both recalled this casting period taking place specifically in 1994. "We were locked in, and then me and Dana would go over to some diner on Larchmont, sit in the booth, and eat corned beef, and recite our lines." Gould and Williams recall there being a deal memo for them to have the job, and the two were deep in planning for the roles, with Williams buying fake bugs to practice for a bug eating scene and Gould simply dreaming of "What will it be like when we've done it - when we've made it!"

Gould expanded on Williams' testimony, saying, "It was a new director, I think his name was Steven Brill ." (It is unclear from the interview if Gould remembered the name incorrectly or if plans for a director changed.) "And he was like, 'Yeah, I'm going to do this movie, and you guys are going to be it, you're like unknowns, we're going to break you and it's going to be great!' And then what apparently happened was that he went to the studio and said, 'I've got these two unknowns...' and they went, ''Naw, we have these guys to deals,' and he went, 'Okay!' "

Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin eventually went on to star in Bio-Dome for director Jason Bloom. See more »

Goofs

In "the book scene", when Bud is lining up in the hallway the camera cuts to Doyle and we can see he is standing with the coffee table lined up right next to him with no room to pass him. As Bud hits him, the camera changes to a view of him from behind, and we can see Bud has plenty of room to get past Doyle as the coffee table has moved. See more »

Quotes

Bud: We have to show the girls that we care about the environment, too.
Doyle: Do we?
Bud: No.

This was a great movie... how can you not love Pauly Shore???
18 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie hundreds of times and I just love it. Pauly Shore has a great way with humor. For all the haters out there... how many movies have YOU been in??? The cast is excellent and the story line addresses some real issues. Even if you HATE Pauly Shore you need to see this movie! All the characters are extremely funny and fit their roles perfectly. Sure some of the humor is dry but that's even more funny. While it's not one of my favorites it certainly is on my list as one to force all my friends to watch, regardless of their resentment...But it's worth it (at least to me!)... Just like The Angry Beavers... I force all my friends to watch at least a couple of episodes! It's just my way.
